Fiesta recebe versão SportVan na Europa

Na maioria dos países nós pensamos em transportes comerciais quando lembramos daqueles trucks e furgões entregando encomendas, como Sedex, Fedex, UPS, etc. Já na Europa, veículos deste tipo podem ser de vários formatos, desde que transportem itens do ponto A até o B.

Na “Commercial Vehicle Show” em Birmingham, ontem, a Ford mostrou o Fiesta SportVan, um carro para uso tanto doméstico como para transporte comercial. Ele tem o estilo de um esporte compacto, com uma parte para cargas no fundo, como uma Fiorino. Motorizado por um motor 1.6L Duratorq, diesel, com 89 cv, ele tem um câmbio de 5 marchas, manual, e um visual bem esportivo, até com aerofólio.

O interior também recebe um estilo bem esportivo de ser. O Fiesta Sport Van foi desenvolvido para aqueles que tem um comércio pequeno e que também querem usar o veículo de entregas no dia-a-dia. O carro pode ser comprado com a lateral normal com a janela, ou fechada, como a Fiorino já mencionada. Apesar de ser considerado uma van, ele parece bem mais com um carro esportivo.

Birmingham, 25 April 2006: With sporty hot-hatch looks, sparkling road performance and impressive load carrying capacity, the Fiesta SportVan is ideal for dual-use customers who require a van for both business and domestic purposes.

Like all Ford Fiestas, the SportVan combines driving quality with functionality and practicality. Powered by Ford’s lively 1.6-litre 90PS 204Nm Duratorq TDCi diesel engine, it boasts the acclaimed Durashift 5-speed manual transmission, power-assisted steering and anti-lock brakes.

Making its public debut at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham and available as either a window van or panel van (availability varies by market), the Fiesta SportVan comes in one of four colours: Colorado Red, Panther Black, Moondust Silver and Diamond White – all with a dark Pewter and ebony Gun Metal interior.

Externally, distinctive styling elements communicate the vehicle’s on-road prowess. These include body-coloured front and rear sport bumpers, 16-inch 12-spoke alloy wheels with 195/45 R16 tyres, tapered body-side mouldings and a rear spoiler. The front end is distinguished by a high intake front grille, sports fog lamps and a rear spoiler.

The style continues inside, with sports front seats, a sports leather gear knob and leather-wrapped steering wheel with silver spokes. An available option pack includes air-conditioning, MP3 connectivity, a heated front windscreen, and electrically-operated and heated door mirrors.

“The small delivery van market is buoyant, thanks to a growing trend toward customers who require a stylish dual-use van for both domestic and business purposes.” said Phil Collareno, Vehicle Line Director, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe.

“The new Fiesta SportVan has been developed to meet the needs of drivers who want more car-like performance, style and fun in combination with the practicality and durability of the Fiesta van.”

The Fiesta SportVan will go on sale in markets across Europe towards the end of the year.
